"I don’t understand my feelings. Sometimes I feel sad and I don’t know why. Then sometimes I feel silly, and I don’t know why either. Now I feel ‘wow,’ because this is my very first interview."
"What was the happiest moment of your life."
"My first day of school."
"Why was that?"
"Because I got to meet new people."
"Who was the best person you met?"
These might be the ugliest, creepiest letters I’ve ever seen. I almost hesitate to post them here, however I’m feeling a little bit scarred by them so I had to share.
The Human Type, letters spell out the name of the French studio that made them; Kerozen. Based on photos of the studio members, the images were mapped onto the letters and adjusted in Photoshop.
‘Thanks’ to sarahschloo for showing them to me.I’m going to stop looking at them now.
Holy cow that’s weird.
"My wife gets upset when I don’t answer her text messages. Sometimes I’ll be at work, and I’ll get a text, but then I’ll forget about it. And I’ll remember it when I’m almost home, and try to answer it really quickly before I walk in the door. But it’s too late."
I was on a commercial flight yesterday, heading back from a visit to Atlanta, when the captain announced that the plane was transporting the body of a slain serviceman. I was sitting at the back of the plane, so when we finally arrived at LaGuardia, I had to wait several minutes for my turn to exit. When I finally stood up from my seat, the scene was surreal. The entire left side of the plane was empty. But everyone on the right side of the plane was still in their seats— faces pressed against the window. I walked past thirty rows of seats before I finally found an open window, and could see what everyone was looking at. The soldier’s name was Ibraham Torres.
The price of freedom.
Black Swan Film Poster Reimagined
This stopped me in my tracks when I first saw it. So simple and effective. I’m sure the film company would never go for it, as it doesn’t feature Natalie Portman’s face or ballerinas (though you’d think Bodoni’s elegant curves would be enough). I wonder what Yves Peters over on the Fontfeed’s ScreenFonts would make of it?
